Expert Tips

  • Jicama (HEE-kah-mah) has a crisp, crunchy texture and a slightly sweet flavor. Shredded or diced jicama is often added to salad.
  • Prepare this salad in advance, cover and refrigerate it for several hours. Just before serving, check to make sure the salad is creamy. Stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk if the salad seems dry.
